Our family was featured in Reality T.V. Show House Hunters International. I was really surprised to hear that the show we were on was a milestone episode. The 500th one to be exact. It ran between the 19th and 21st. of June 2012 and it was called “Dreaming of Marseille”

This is a video update and response to readers questions

I received a lot of email from people who ask me how we got on House Hunters International. Many readers also wanted to know why France? I decided to make this video as a response and summary.

Hi Annie,

First of all, you have a great site! You have one of the best websites that provide details on living abroad. Did you use an international moving company to move your belongings to France? If so, please let me know about the experience and the cost involved.

Thanks,

Ed
